You know as well as we do that being a mom is hard work. It can be isolating, overwhelming, and completely exhausting. We all know that being a Mom is the most rewarding job we can do, but it’s also the hardest. And we’ve all heard it takes a village…
What if that village was a group of moms in our community that could come together and connect? What if that meant caring for one another in times of need, or getting together to celebrate? Perhaps, there is a new mom on your street who needs to know about the best place to get coffee. Or maybe you just need advice from the mom who’s been there and can offer you a shoulder (or a helping hand) as you navigate your latest parenting challenge. We’d love to introduce you to Rochester Mom Community + Conversation.
Our number one goal in creating Rochester Mom was to create a community on and offline through our content as well as our in-person events. Now that Rochester Mom is Rochester Local…it doesn’t just mean this community goes away. Moms need moms to support and encourage one another in this epic journey we are all on together more than ever.. Community + Conversation is a place to connect with the moms around you. Our hope is to create a safe place for moms from all walks of life to ask questions, share stories, and receive encouragement.
The basic rules for our Community + Conversation Group are:
1. Be kind. We do not ask or expect everyone to agree all the time. Motherhood is the easiest thing to have an opinion about but the hardest thing to actually do. There will, however, be no tolerance of any inflammatory, derogatory, or bullying talk. We want this to be a safe place for moms to share their stories, including struggles.
2. No personal promotion. We love seeing moms find their passions. Really we do, but this is not the place for personal advertisements. If you would like to advertise with RMMB, please contact us at email@example.com.
3. No buy/sell/trade. There are loads of b/s/t groups on Facebook. This group is not a place for selling furniture or baby clothes. Rather Community + Conversation is a place to meet other moms and grow friendships.
4. Be safe. Keep safety in mind, and please consider meeting at a public place when meeting someone new for the first time.
It is simple to join! There are no fees, no memberships, and no minimum attendance or participation requirements. When you visit the Rochester Mom Community + Conversation Facebook page, you simply click the “Join” tab or input your name into the “Add Members” field. Easy peasy.
